Good and Real SUV by Will Ham on 11/22/2013. Trim: 2008 Ford Explorer Limited 4.0L AWD.
Pros: Love that it's the original SUV. I owned a 93 Limited and it was one of the most fun vehicles I've ever owned. It and the Wrangler were in Jurassic Park! Decent ground clearance, decent passing power, nice center stack lay out, solid quality feel of interior, and... if you're going to buy American, stick with Ford! Only company to not be bailed out! The U.S. gov't lost 10 billion dollars with the GM bailout.
Cons: My 93 Explorer had the same interior dimensions as a new Escape. So when I was in this generation Explorer my expectations for interior comfort were high. It's GREAT that it has a third row available... however, at 6'4'', riding in the SECOND row, with two petite females was extremely uncomfortable. The drivetrains seem archaic... just a byproduct of American Arrogance standing by while Japanese tech surpassed us! Poor fuel economy.
Overall review: If you NEED and SUV, and you're considering a Durango, Tahoe, etc, buy an Explorer!
